Clutter around your home adds to your overall stress level, whether you’re looking to move or planning to stick around for a while. There are several benefits to cleaning out your home, both mentally and physically. A home cleanout can lead to reduced allergy side effects. Dust mites and pet dander can collect on and around your belongings, leaving a year-round allergen in your home. Dust and other particles can also collect in the fibers of any carpeting in your home.
